TUESDAY: Inspiring Spaces by Stacey Costello

Meet beautiful, and talented artist, designer, mother, wife, and new friend of mine: Stacey Costello. I met Stacey through the blog, and once I saw her gorgeous website and portfolio I knew that I needed to share it with all of you! Stacey Costello Design is based in Santa Cruz, California and surprise surprise, Stacey is the principle designer. With an eye for detail, she creates rooms that are picture perfect, and they've been published by the likes of Romantic Country magazine.

Formally trained, and an allied member of the ASID, Stacey has all of the rules of design firmly grounded in her aesthetic, but she knows just when to break them - and that's the key when looking for a good designer! If you're in the Santa Cruz area, and you're looking for a designer with the goods to get your home into magazine ready shape - email Stacey, and then get ready for your close up! Til then, enjoy these bits of her portfolio!

Stacey has a blog and an etsy store that you can visit. The blog is in the process of being updated she tells me, so hopefully we can all look forward to getting some advice from her within those pages. Til she can get to that, track back through the pages ... go on, she's waiting for you!
